Mushroom Tikka Masala

2013-03-13

Ingredients:

For the sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 large onion, minced
2 teaspoons ginger-garlic paste
3 medium sized ripe tomatoes, pureed
1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
½ teaspoon cumin powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder or according to taste
2 tablespoons dry kasoori methi (dried fenugreek)
2 tablespoons heavy cream, optional
Salt

For the vegetables
9oz fresh white button mushrooms (about 15 mushrooms)
1 large green or red bell pepper, cubed
¼ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
1/4 cup whole Greek yogurt or strained yogurt
1 tablespoon oil

Method:

Heat oil in a wok, and add the cumin seeds. When they begin to sizzle add the onion. Cook on medium heat till onion is brown. Then add the ginger garlic paste and stir for about 45 seconds. Pour in the tomato puree and sprinkle the coriander, cumin, turmeric and chili powders.

Bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to a simmer, and let the gravy cook for about 12 minutes or till it thickens and oil floats on top. (Canned tomato puree will cook in lesser time). If the sauce gets too thick add ½ cup water whenever needed.

While the sauce is cooking, work on the mushrooms. Wipe the mushrooms clean with a paper towel. If the mushrooms are large, cut them in half, if not leave them whole. Mix together the mushrooms, pepper, turmeric, chili powder, and yogurt and set side.

Heat a large skillet and add oil. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and peppers. Make sure you don’t crowd the pan; do this in batches if needed. Cook the mushroom and peppers on medium heat, till they start to brown a little. Don’t move the mushrooms around too much, they wont brown.

When the tomato sauce is done, add the sautéed mushrooms and bell peppers to it. Also add kasoori methi and sat. Cook on medium heat for about 3 minutes or till the peppers are cooked. Turn off heat and stir in heavy cream if using. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

    I don’t have much time to cook or clear up after cooking. I live alone, so how can I eat healthy and tasty without much time or cooking?

    Hello, I’m trying to diet and I try to get one good 600 calorie meal a day (I’m not JUST eating one meal a day or starving myself as someone just said)

    I’ve barely eaten today, soup and fruit and some toast!

    But anyway, I went to a all you can eat Indian buffet tonight and I ate

    - a couple of popadoms with mango dip
    - 5 chicken tikka pieces
    - chicken tikka masala + veggie rice
    - 3battered mushrooms
    - loads of lettuce and olives and cucumber

    Can anyone tell me, as roughly or as detailed, how many calories this could be?

    I’m terrible with counting anything, I’d just like to know if I’ve accidentally eaten 100000000 calories or something hehe

    THANKYOU xxxxxxxxx

    I rarely get pimples in my ears, but they come once in awhile I guess. But I have a very sore or cystic pimple inside my left ear, almost near the entrance to my earlobe. Are there any ways of how to treat and get rid of it quickly?

    Please tell me.

    I am using prescription acne products, differin and Benzaclin, that dry my face out, so I’m using cetaphil lotion on it because it’s noncomedogenic. The problem, my face seems greasy a lot, but if I don’t use lotion it is flaky and dry. Is there something I can use to cover up the oil or absorb it? Also is there a good noncomedogenic foundation powder that I can use to cover up my acne scars?

    Mine:
    I: Vanilla
    2: Tikka Masala Curry.
    3: Coconut.
    4: Mixed onions & mushrooms, frying in Worcestershire sauce & olive oil.
    5: Flap-Jacks, fresh out the oven when I walk through the front door. (I know my daughter’s been busy & possibly wants a favour).
    BACON; HOW did i forget Frying Bacon???
